He Asked A Stranger To Buy Him Food. What Happened Next Will Tug At Your Heartstrings
June 25, 2016
A 16-year-old asked a stranger at a Kroger grocery store to buy him and his mother some food in exchange for carrying the man's groceries to his car, and what happened next will tug at your heartstrings.
A wonderful bond formed between the two, and within a couple of weeks, the stranger helped raise $190,000 on GoFundMe to support the Memphis teenager and his disabled mother.
"When Chauncy approached me, it just tugged at my heart," White said. "Here comes Chauncy, just trying to get food for him and his Mom off of the grace of other people. When I looked at him and saw what he was doing and what he was asking for, I said he was my hero."
"Chauncy lives in Memphis with his disabled mother," White explained on the crowdfunding site. "He is a straight A student who is doing his best to make it in a world with no money and very few resources. He wants to work and help his mother financially."
White said Chauncy asked him for donuts, but White knew that the teen needed more food than that, "So we just went aisle by aisle and he told me his story, about him and his Mom, and we just went through the store and got him his necessities, about a week's worth of groceries."
White said he just shared the story with his friends, and had no idea his and Chauncy's story would go viral.
"It's so rare that we get an opportunity to affect so much change on one life. I think back to how many people poured into my life with their generosity, time, money, encouragement, and it brings me to tears. The impact that those people had on my life can never be measured. I am so grateful for the lives we share with one another, so grateful for each and every one of God's children. I cannot thank you enough for caring about Chauncy. This is his big chance, and you're making it possible. Thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you thank you."
